Q: Who are the new owner's?
A: They have chose to keep things on the down low right now for strategic reasons. I am sure they will introduce themselves soon. I can say that they have a lot of web experience and industry connections and the future is bright for tFS.
hmm this sounds exciting and mysterious..anyway i am not big fan of the change either but i am also curious about how things are going to change i hope everything gets better for TFS with new owners and ideas..

change is inevitable. I've only been around a short time and do not have the history of this site fresh in my memory. if Andy thinks it's a move towards a better forum, then I'll trust his decision to change ownership was a wise one. with respect to open registration...i can only say that i would be slightly perturbed...ONLY because it took a while for me to have the opportunity to join this forum. i do not have an "in" in the fashion industry and am otherwise employed in the private sector; but have a zeal and fervor for all things fashionable, and this is the only true outlet i have...

my opinion would be before seeking to grow exponentially, that the current membership be reviewed for consistent participation, that unused or little used logons be given a 30-day (arbitrary time frame) to re-enter and re-engage the forum, or otherwise be left out for lack of interest...when that membership has been refined, then obviously seek references for new members, and partnerships with other like minded sites.

anyway, that's my 2 cents. i'll step off the soapbox now

a parting question: could future membership be limited only to those who are employed in the fashion industry? (if so, i need to switch careers quickly...)
this would never happen...

for one..
it wouldn't be profitable in terms of numbers and members for people who want to advertise on this site..

but most importantly..
a HUGE number of us aren't in the industry and add a lot to the community..
this site is for people who love fashion, and love to talk and post about it..
that won't change

congrats AndyR! you'll be sorely missed.

I second model_mom's sentiments. tFS has been strong through a bit of change already (as fourboltmain pointed out, of course! ha) and will keep on truckin'.

Are these eminences grises planning to reveal themselves then or will the mod squad cipher their thoughts to those of us still trapped in the matrix?

^^the mod squad knows exactly what you know at this point..

we haven't been made aware of who the new owners are yet, because as andy said, they want to lay low for now..
